The Award database is continually updated throughout the year. As a result, data for FY24 is not expected to be complete until March, 2025.

Download all SBIR.gov award data either with award abstracts (290MB) or without award abstracts (65MB). A data dictionary and additional information is located on the Data Resource Page. Files are refreshed monthly.

The SBIR.gov award data files now contain the required fields to calculate award timeliness for individual awards or for an agency or branch. Additional information on calculating award timeliness is available on the Data Resource Page.

  1. Organic&Hybrid Organic/Inorganic-Based Graded-Index/Layered Optical Coatings by Physical Vapor Deposition (PVD)

    SBC: INTER MATERIALS, LLC            Topic: AF10BT19

    ABSTRACT: One of the Air Force main interests is to improve the antireflective (AR) optical properties of polycarbonate by exploring new coating materials or coating techniques to eliminate delamination and stress cracks due to the mismatch in the coefficient of thermal expansion between the coatings and the polymer substrates. SwRI and INTER Materials are in a unique position to assist the Air F ...

  2. Aerosol Jet Printing of Single-Wall Carbon Nanotube Transistors on Plastic Substrate

    SBC: OPTOMEC, INC.            Topic: AF09BT26

    ABSTRACT: The goal of this phase II proposal is to develop a commercial platform for printing high performance, single-walled carbon nanotube transistor circuits on large-area plastic substrate. Automated processes will be developed for the room temperature printing of metal, semiconductor, and dielectric materials with micron-scale alignment accuracy. The transistor performance will be enha ...

  4. Infrared Metamaterials for Emission Phase Control

    SBC: PLASMONICS INC            Topic: AF10BT30

    ABSTRACT: Under the first phase of the program, Plasmonics Inc. and Sandia National Laboratories investigated a range of surfaces that yield non-Lambertian emission profiles in the thermal infrared. The second phase of this program will further maturate the designs developed in the first phase of the program. With the vast majority of the analytical work complete, focus in the second phase will b ...

  5. High frequency (HF) direction-finding (DF) system based on an array of high-Tc superconducting quantum interference devices (SQUIDs)

    SBC: Out of the Fog Research LLC            Topic: AF10BT40

    ABSTRACT: In Phase II, we will fabricate a SQUID array antenna. We will develop cryopackaging and control electronics for these devices. We integrate the device onto a cryocooler and build a laboratory prototype. We will then have all of the building blocks to build a fieldable prototype in Phase III. BENEFIT: Military Application: Microwave Communication Systems for ISR. Commercial Application ...

  7. Optical Refrigeration for Dramatically Improved Cryogenic Technology

    SBC: ThermoDynamic Films LLC            Topic: AF10BT02

    ABSTRACT: Optical refrigeration is currently the only demonstrated all-solid-state cryocooling technology. Optical cryocoolers are devices that use laser light to cool small crystal or glass cooling elements. The cooling element absorbs the laser light and reradiates it at higher energy, an example of anti-Stokes fluorescence. The difference between the energy of the outgoing and incoming light c ...
